Holden Baker drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime, but it wasn’t enough for a Pioneer victory Friday night in DeKalb County.The Tigers hit crucial foul shots in overtime and held Warren County to three points in OT to claim a 77-70 win.Baker came to life offensively to lead the Warren County attack with 27 points. He was followed by Carlos Villegas with 19.Warren County would fall victim to poor inbounding and going cold from the free throw line late in the game.With the Pioneers down by four at halftime, 34-30, the third quarter is where things started to get interesting. After DeKalb scored on a missed assignment, Villegas drove the distance of the floor scoring for the Pioneers.The back-and-forth action would continue as DeKalb ran back the distance and shot from deep.
